    Great coffee in Hobart.

    I am in Hobart for a few days so I decided to look for a decent coffee. Looking up Beanhunter on my phone, I found a place called Zimmah Coffee. Actually, it took a few circuits of the city to find them as they are located down a driveway at 219b
    Murray Street. I just rocked up and a guy looked up and said "can I help you?" It turns out his name is Dané and he's the owner. He made me a piccolo laté and it was great. When he found out I was a Coffeesnobs he was very helpful, telling me about the business and giving me hints about coffee roasting. In all I think I was there for an hour and a half. Dané was a pleasure to talk with. He is obviously very passionate about coffee. Presently they use a Has Garanti 10 kgs and will soon supplement it with a 30 kg roaster. The premises has turned an area into a funky little café currently only serving coffee but will soon expand and serve food as well. If you wish to visit Hobart soon, you can visit Island Espresso on Elizabeth Street that is run by his mum and sisters. They serve his coffee.

    Bought beans off them a couple of times. Seriously delicious.

    I forgot to mention that Zimmer use a fully rebuilt old La Marzocco plus they have a Trifecta. Dané made me a coffee on the Trifecta that was fruity and lightly acidic. It's an amazing machine.

    I had heard of Zimmer, but haven't managed to get there on either of my recent trips... Had no idea Dané was involved! Added to the list for next time...

    The Zimmah roastery and Café are hard to find. They're opposite the VW dealership, down the driveway.

    Thanks for the description there, I didn't even have to google it. I went there this morning and bought two 250g bags of beans and the one I opened smelled sensational! Only had one cup and under extracted it (but I didn't want to waste it). I'll try again in the morning but, wow, so nice to have such a great roaster in Hobart!

    No problem! I know how much difficulty I had in finding it.
    As well as the coffee tasting great, the labels on the bags are pretty groovy too. Dané was wearing a tee-shirt with a graphic from one of the labels. I wanted to buy a tee but they only had womens sizes

    Omg I have found the best coffee I've ever had, in my own home, on the BDB, with Zimmah beans. Second the cool label art. The beans I tried today were 'Devil and the Deep', so rich.

    Yeah I got a pack of the tattooed nun for this week so next week I'll try those other two! I'm finding 500g/week is about right. Does he sell by the kg?

    BOUTIQUE ESPRESSO 162 Macquarie St (near Travelodge). A welcoming and friendly Anthony and Dominic served up excellent and consistent cups of Café de Lacey coffees to us over several days.
    doctor coffee shop 2 Salamanca Place. What a great themed café. Bags of green beans displayed information about such. Coffee superb. Delicious carrot cake and hot chocolate also.
    ISLAND ESPRESSO 171 Elizabeth St. Using Zimmah coffee. A very tasty breakfast and beautiful coffee to accompany.
    A real treat was to take the CAFE TOUR.
    Started at ECRU 18 Criterion St (Villino's hole in the wall shop close by to Villino Cafe). Tasmanian Latte Art Champion Andy demonstrated his skills. Caleb pulled fantastic shots for the art work.
    doctor coffee 3/58 Collins St. Privileged to chat with Dr Wynde Mason who owns the business and has a PhD in coffee. They import their own beans direct from the growers. Wynde's credentials show in the incredible coffees and chocolates we sampled.
    PILGRIM COFFEE 48 Argyle St. Owner Will Priestley Tasmania's Barista and Cup Tasting Champion took time out to discuss and demonstrate his themes for his MICE completion entries. They were truly amazing and we felt so privileged.
    YELLOW BERNARD 109 Collins St. Using Gridlock coffee and some of their own roasts. Scott and Tim make fabulous coffee and the best home made Chai ever tasted. Incredible delicious tasting macrons (home made by Carol).
    PM if you would like details of CAFE TOUR.

    Sounds like a good tour - reckon I can guess the mob; they're quality folk.

    I made a couple of semi-accidental discoveries on the last Hobart trip:

    • Capulus Espresso is a new(ish) place just off the corner of Elizabeth and Tasma in North Hobart. Tres hipster-chic hole-in-the-wall doing a busy pre-work takeaway trade, with tables out the back in a shared garage space. SO ristretto was one of the standouts of the trip.
    • Park Lane Espresso are tucked away in the walkway behind Smolt in Salamanca Square. Some nice use of Tasmanian timber in the fitout. I had three or four solid flat whites over a couple of visits.


    Also had great coffee at YB, Villino/cru, Pilgrim, the Dr Coffee empire, Berta, and probably others I've forgotten...

    Yet to get to Zimmah... next time gadget.

    Good to see Capulus getting a plug.
    Dan has been a mate for a few years and worked/ managed a number of places. The hole in the wall (well, back entrance to the Hair Salon) is his own space now.
    Shared area out the back with salon clients works for everyone.
    His own blend and roast he does in conjunction with the guys at Zimmah, and I recommend taking a kilo home with you.
    It's a great blend and one I use on a daily basis.

    Also, Pigeon Hole Cafe are worth the trip to an out of the way spot.
    Kev is a great barista and always have some interesting beans in the grinder.

    This thread has been quiet for a while...

    I gather Pigeon Hole have had a couple of changes of barista - they were hiring during one visit early last year - but seem to have found a good crew based on the last visit.

    I was in Pigeon Hole a few weeks before Christmas, can't say the coffee was gonna get me back for it alone, but with good food it's satisfactory enough. New players Sash on Sandy Bay Rd are impressing. Barista/owner used to be at Pilgrim apparently. Incredibly friendly.
    On pilgrim, can't say that they had a good run at the taste unfortunately. Their in house still impresses (was there yesterday), but what they were pumping out at the taste was just a matter of making some milky caffeinated cash I suspect. I had two sub par coffees. A real shame given their reputation! Ironically, they had cappuccino chocolate on the menu, leaving behind their purist practice of the shop to appeal to the masses. Their take-away-only place on Brooke St Pier called Bright Eyes is a bit of hit and miss. They have an EK43 down there and in skilled hands they make a lovely coffee (so glad they were open Boxing Day!) but again consistency lacks when they have their inexperienced staff trying to use the unrelenting EK43 as per a coffee I had on Monday.
    Pilgrim still killing it in Salamanca, as are Yellow Bernard on Collins (although were shut for all of Summer holidays).
    Shame that Environs has closed. Wasn't always great coffee, but the food was awesome value.

    We have just lobbed in Hobart for a holiday.

    guided by CS, we're just going for lunch. Zimmah. Hopefully they serve food.

    Anywhere else recently?
    I'd like to get to 3 or 4, & maybe out of town...

    Okay, here goes.

    Not much around out of town, and perhaps hard to get out unless you have transport.

    Usual suspects in town - zimmah; villino in criterion st; pilgrim; yellow bernard.

    Others can certainly be great but consistency is tricky.

    Good luck! Weather has really welcomed you.

    Out of town is really not a thing. There are a few places in Bellerive doing Zimmah and Villino coffee, but might as well go to the source for those. South of the city there isn't really anything worthwhile. If you go out to the northern suburbs, Shake a leg Jr. in Moonah is worth going to (Owned by a former partner in Yellow Bernard)

    Oh yeah, now I remember. I was expecting a smart-ass comment like "out of town".

    Back on-topic... the new Pigeon Whole Bakers space in the Mercury building is worth a visit even if just to marvel at its Scandinavian-inspired beauty. Some of Hobart's best donuts, too, and the filter batch brew I tried was pretty decent (they don't have an espresso machine in this outlet).

    And they are recruiting for a barista in West Hobart again.

    Thanks for the responses.
    We ended up at Pilgrim. It was really good. Sensory Lab beans. I'd be homesick if I'd been here for more than 4 hours.
    They serve half a dozen types of slider. we got three. tasty. id recommend this place.

    And we are in a place called Dynnyrne. There's a place called Ginger Brown just near us. It "looked" good, and was busy at lunchtime when we went past. That doesn't really say anything about their coffee though.

    I saw the Villino in the cbd. I'd like to try that. But I saw a few places that are serving good coffees. You certainly needn't be deprived.

    We'll go to Salamanca Mkt tomorrow. Not sure what's situated clase to there.

    as far as I know Pigeon Hole was sold as an entire business to another business (see here) and Pigeon Whole was started consequently - thus not really connected. I may have that wrong. And yeah, those donuts are amazing.

    Ginger Brown is ok for coffee. Used to be my Sunday go-to before Pilgrim opened up. Their food is better than their coffee IMO, but it kind of depends who is on the machine.

    In Salamanca is Parklane Espresso, but their quality has slipped a little since I spent a summer working for them. Visited most recently in late March and I was a bit disappointed to be honest... but still probably the best (ONLY) specialty coffee option in the square, or in fact on Salamanca Place. If you're looking for food in Salamanca that isn't market food, then drop in to Machine Laundry Cafe - best breakfasts in Hobart I'd argue. And the coffee there is totally acceptable alongside a tasty meal.

    Every time I've been to Bruny an espresso machine has come with us... and yeah I've never had a great coffee in Richmond, but it's worth going down, so you might find somewhere nice as a result. There is one _ok_ place on the main drag, near all the second hand/trinkety shops, but wasn't nice enough for me to remember what it is called.

    Ha.

    In other news: If you see someone in a white hire car being confused by what may or may not be unmarked dual carriageways, don't forget to wave.

    Hmm, I thought Weston Farm always owned Pigeon Hole... according to the wayback machine that page was published in July 2014 and hasn't changed since... 🤔


    My understanding was Jay wanted to focus more on baking (I think he had a bakery out in Moonah that supplied Pigeon Hole and not much else) prior to moving into the Mercury building, and that he's now focussed on that and their new bakery in Devonport and hands-off at the cafe. I could be entirely wrong about all of that though.

    They must've seriously upped their coffee game if they're making drinkable coffee these days... 🤔

    I've heard good things about the Pollen Tea Room almost directly opposite, have never tried it out myself though.

    I really don't rate their coffee - although admittedly last actually had a brew there in 2012... reckon it's worth it for coffee, or just the tasty baked goods?

    Just before my emergency root canal treatment* this morning, we dropped into Vilino(?) coffee. Had a filter (batch brew). It was really good. Big body, sort of "creamy" (for a filter). It was really great.

    Mrs SBM has liked her soy Capps but says "they're all small here". (The Capps, that is.)

    After my dental procedure, we went to the market, but was too scared to drink any coffee lest i undo the dentist's good work. Maybe tomorrow we try Machine Laundry or Ginger Brown.

    Later in Richmond I had a Veneziano coffee at a waffle & lolly shop. It was fine. Nothing special, but they are using a good coffee. It gets Richmond out of the "coffee wasteland" category. Although the use of Coles soy milk put it very much on the border.

    *3 sips into this coffee I was in excruciating pain, but recovered to finish the cup, keeping the liquid very much in the right side of my mouth.

    Time for today's live feed from Tassie!

    mothers day breakfast at machine laundry (salamanca square).Thanks for the recommendation. It was really good. Food was great, and Villino double espresso was really good. This place is a cool little cafe, very busy today, with a laundromat. If I were a househusband living here, I'd probably use the laundromat thing as an excuse. Happy with this place.

    then went up to parklane (about six doors up) for a cleansing batch brew . Kenyan. Really spicy, raisins, fading into blueberry. Lovely little place. Zimmah coffee.

    trip to Bruny Island.... Brewed my own with the lido/ minipresso combo... Still learning the minipresso caper, but the scenery from that lookout on the Neck is totes speccy. Totes. I would encourage all snobs to brew a coffee from that vantage point.

    ive got one last shot at Hobart before catching the plane. Perhaps we will take a spin up Mt Wellington. NNot holding high hopes, unless I can lean upon you for one more recommendation...

    Nice trip! Machine was listed in lonely planet's top ten coolest places in the world about a decade ago, at the time the coffee was nothing special and the article referred to "bronzed" Aussies; I guess either the reviewer never actually went there or there were a lot of mainlanders visiting that day 😂

    Definitely hit up Yellow Bernard if you can, pretty convenient on your way through town to the airport if you can shark a rockstar park on Collins St 😉

    Re: the mountain, I've had good experiences at lost freight - pop-up at the springs halfway up. Enjoy the view, and dress warm!

    Okay. Thanks Matt!

    leanne did say something about half way up the mountain. Definitely try it. If we can, we'll stop by yellow Bernard...

    and no. No bronzed Aussies. No corked hats or surfboards either.

    Hobart's changed.

    Definitely hit up Yellow Bernard if you can, pretty convenient on your way through town to the airport if you can shark a rockstar park on Collins St 

    Re: the mountain, I've had good experiences at lost freight - pop-up at the springs halfway up. Enjoy the view, and dress warm!
    I went up the mountain in late March and saw Lost Freight there. Wish I'd gone when it was open, am keen to try! (also at the time, really needed a coffee!! Alas).

    Lost freight is definatly worth a go 1st time i saw the place thought it would be a tourist gimmicky thing but there coffee is great (zimmer through a la maz) and up there with the best in town.
    Fav in town is ecru
    parklane best close to sal square
    the groundsman in bellerive if you are in the area is worth a look
    Jackman & McRoss Bakery for awesome cakes but coffee sucks

    Yellow Bernard definitely worth a try.

    Yea, I second Jackman & McRoss for sweets and pies, if you dine in with a pie they give you a bit of their own tomato relish, and it is tasty (try Egg & bacon pie and any of their croissants). My go to for a coffee at the moment is Yellow bernard for a flat white, Pilgrim for a latte, and Villino for a long black. Those are all near CBD so it's easy to drop by and taste them.
    If I need to wake up, I go to Zimmah, as you get closer to the shop you can really smell the coffee and the taste is something different in a good way. (plus HN and a hardware store are nearby)

    I see that Capulus has opened a second place in Watchorn St. Another option in the CBD!

    The Agrarian Kitchen in NewNorfolk are excellent but only open from Friday to Monday I think?
    They are in the willow court complex. Very trendy joint and they use Tattoed Nun with a 1:1 brew ratio.
    But we find it's worth booking as they always seem full.
